Default Re: Is TDK's Joker the greatest cinematic villian of all time?

Oooh! I also want to mention the bad guys played by the great Eli Wallach! He was brilliant as Calvera not just because he was ruthless but he called it as he saw it in Mexico.

He was also great as the General in "Lord Jim", even though he became overshadowed by a more sinister villain, Gentleman Brown, who also called it as he saw it.

All that talk about 'a better class of criminal' and Bane's empty speeches are nothing compared to villains who can expose the deepest flaws of the heroes. Even when Jennifer Love Hewitt played the Devil I had to love that line where she said she's not evil for giving people bad deals. Instead she accuses God of making life unfair for people.

If there's one thing you can learn from Game of Thrones is this important lesson:

All Men Betray
